Gracias, sí de hecho en la escuela donde estudio nos pasaron esta página y pues me interesó mucho, pues pienso estudiar música profesionalmente. Acabo de visitar "Saving Songs" y vi una interpretación tuya de "Luz de Luna" y me gustó demasiado, ¿podría publicar un cover que hice de la canción "Ley de Newton" por Jesús Navarro y Beatriz Luengo? no es un clásico ni profesional como los que publican pero me gustaría saber su opinión.
Hi Magos ! :) What fun this is and what a fantastic forum ! :) Funny you should mention Angelitos Negros...that was the first song that came to mind when I was considering what to sing. I first heard Eartha Kitt sing this song, and I love her as a performer, but since then have heard many versions. I love the song. Can't wait to sing it.
Hey Maguitos! So glad Im here. Thank you for inviting me to this wonderful opportunity. I've always believed mexican music has a magic to it that can make the world fall in love with it. Its recognizable, and shows the mistery and greatness of our culture. We must not only save it but learn to enjoy it and make future generations aware of its inmense beauty!
